Broken Hill Holiday ... The Map

The all important map ... this (roughly) shows the route we took for our Broken Hill holiday, which is detailed in the four posts below. Don't know if it is readable, but it gives you a general idea of where we travelled (the pink line). Australia sure is a big country ... we travelled approximately 3,200 kilometres.

Holy! that's some trip! Seems like you spent more time on the raod than anything else, though. Bet you're tired. That kind of adventure is hard work. I am lazy, I prefer hotel rooms and indoor plumbing! lol I have enjoyed your vacation posts! Thanks for sharing! D :}

Badoozie said...

holy moly you covered a lot of ground

Meow said...

Felinefrisky ... we did spend a heap of time on the road, but loved it all the same. Whilst I love all the luxury, also, I think I prefer this type of holiday. Maybe I'm weird !!

Susie ... yep, that we did !!

Take care, Meow

Devil Mood said...

Wow, thta sounds exciting!
And that little map (of the huge country, of course) looks cute!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

That map shows what a big journey you had. Well done in doing it.

Meow said...

Devil Mood ... it was very exciting. I love doing trips like this one.

Jean-luc ... thank you. It certainly was an accomplishment.

Take care, Meow

Nicole said...

Oh gosh.... Weird? NO WAY.
I love doing that type of thing too. I actually spent quite a bit of time reading and re-reading and examining your pictures. I have been to all those places but I was only a child. I think I would have to rate that holiday as the best post I have ever seen on a blog EVER! I loved it and lived it with you. Thank you so very much my dear friend. Much love, Nicole xox.

Meow: Even when I lived briefly in Bulgaria, I couldn't get the kilometers bit. But that looks like a fairly challenging, of not difficult trip. Rest up!

Meow said...

Nicole ... thank you so much. I love that part of the country, the remoteness is really quite special. Even when there is nothing to see ... there is always something to look at. Huge hugs to you, dear friend.

Michael ... the distances were quite challenging for those that weren't used to it. We loved it !! There was no real four-wheel driving, but plenty of dirt driving !!

Take care, Meow

By starting at Della's sixty blog I arrived here and stated that we have commun interests ! I started blogging in July and I am also a cat lover (I have 4) and with the blogging I started photography too, as I needed all the time pictures for my cat blog. I also like Webdesign and to decorate my blog but my know how is very limited but I try to do my best ! If you want to know more about me it's in my writer cramp blog under Thursday 13, where I had to present myself in the webring.

Jamie Dawn said...

What a LONG, interesting trip.

I really like the photo below of the view from your motel balcony. I am a BIG fan of water and trees.
I LOVE water and trees!! I hope there were no huge crocs in that Murray River though. I'm NOT a fan of crocs!!!

The Underground Bar is mega cool!

For use in my poem, I will use the phrase "Have a good tiime" which you wrote in the comments. I will work on the poem later tonight. It will not be easy to incorporate all the words and phrases that people left in the comments, but I enjoy a good challenge!

Meow said...

Gattina ... thank you for visiting my blog. I will drop over to visit yours shortly ...

Jamie Dawn ... thank you. It wasn't a very LONG trip, although it may appear so with the 5 posts lol. Fortunately, the Murray River has no crocs ... not far enough north. It is a very popular river for camping and water sports, houseboating, etc. Looking forward to reading your poem.

Take care, Meow

Belizegial said...

I enjoyed the remainder of the vacation photos and learnt a lot more about your part of the world.
The underground hotel is a cool idea, literally. Thanks for sharing these wonderful memories.

bethany said...

wow. I have been to all those places. I love 4wdriving and camping. Been to Mungo its fantastic, really a lot of history there. Last time I was in Mildura there was ahot air ballon festival on, what an amazing sight seeing all those balloons, and some just land down on the road in front of you, will try to dig out some pics.

GOOD GRAVY! You've been a busy little bee, haven't you? Email me at and give me your addy. I want to send you a Florida souvenir I ran across in one of our shops lately.

Nerdine said...

wow! That's FAR! I love road trips... As long as the people I go on a road trip with also likes them and does not ask for every five minutes "are we there yet???"

I love those photos you've posted. They're so alien-like to me. It's SO different from the landscape here. Very cool!

DayByDay4-2Day said...

WEll when you look at that way! I say wow!

Meow said...

Bossy ... too bad you don't like road trips ... they are the perfect way to see a big country like Australia !! We did see some dingoes and wallabies, and lots and lots of emus and kangaroos.

Enid ... thank you so much. Glad you enjoyed them.

Bethany ... wow, a fellow camper and 4WDer ... too cool. They are all amazing places ... I want to go back ... NOW !!

Lufra ... I will get back to you soon.

Saurkraut ... yep, pretty busy !!! I have emailed you ... thanks for thinking of me.

Nerdine ... thank you. Much of the landscape was very alien-like ... it was incredible. I loved it.

Daybyday ... thanks !!

Take care, Meow
